Mark Albiston, Louis Sutherland (New Zealand) / R16

After a chance encounter with charismatic thief Bennie and his close-knit gang of 'Shoppers', Willie is seduced into a criminal world that allows him to escape mounting tensions with his volatile father. Willie quickly finds himself in over his head; and when Solomon is left to fend for himself at home, the two worlds collide with shattering consequences.

“Shopping unwraps to explore the big ideas – identity, growing up and familial ties – with beauty, quiet humour, and a big Kiwi dollop of bleakness.” - Flicks

“A lot of heart and raw emotion.” - The Hollywood Reporter
